Hi SFers,

I'm looking to add something to my weekly shoe rotation, which looks something like this:
  • AE Park Avenues (black)
  • BB Peal & Co. Chukkas (burgundy)
  • BB Peal & Co. Plain-toe bluchers (brown)
  • C&J Tavistock (III?) (black)

... and to a lesser extent, Martegani Lucca2 ('radica' dark brown), and Tramezza Reale Loafers (dark brown).

This would be my last big shoe purchase before spring, and I was hoping to spend less than $600. I'm a Boston-area student, so they would probably be seeing a decent amount of winter wear.

As of now, I'm considering C&J Weymouth or Savile.

Any suggestions would be welcome!

How does suede hold up in wet conditions?

Bump: Any other suggestions would be great!

I've gotten some ideas from the parallel $900 shoe thread, too.
